I recently bought a Springfield XDm .45, and so far, I'm impressed. Shoots right to the sights, soft recoil, runs with whatever I feed it, points like my 1911s and holds 14 rounds of .45ACP. I'll not likely carry it a lot, but I'd like the option. Problem is, this gun is TALL. The long grip is going to require a holster with more than the typical 15 degeee butt-forward "FBI" tilt. Any of you guys or gals carrying one concealed? In what?
sorry i only carry a 40 xdm once in a while and i append carry it and conceal it very well but yet agian i am a big guy 6' 3" 450 lbs so i can conceal almost anything.
I carry one. I'm 5'7, 155 lbs. For me it did require more than the normal 15 degrees FBI cant. A little fiddling with my Supertuck and it worked out just fine.
6'3" and 450? I ain't messin with you, RAM! Giaodn, thanks. The Supertuck and the K&D Dakota Defender are two designs I'm looking at.
I can carry mine, but not with a tee shirt. use an IWB holster.

That thing is huge! I do not think that I would like to carry one all day long, but if I had to, it should most probably be in an IWB MOB palm in holster.

I carry a Glock 21 SF IWB all day long. Conceals pretty easily since most of it is inside my pants.
Thanks to all. I have some good ideas now, including one from another thread.
I carry mine in CBST I have the really long 45 (5 inch barrel).

I carried an XD-45 Service for a couple of years and it was a very accurate and dependable pistol. It ended up being traded for another 1911. I would really like to get my hands on and actually shoot one of the XDM-45's but they have not shown up in this are yet. We will see what happens when they do.

That is a pretty big gun for CC. It would be a good duty or range gun, but big to carry everyday. Just my two cents, people disagree on my feelings about EDC gun size all the time. I chuckle at some of the firearms people carry on this forum. "Just get a gun belt and a supertuck" is the answer everyone will give you.
Enjoy the XD, they always served me well when I owned them.
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
